I have been working on a new range of newborn beanies for my felt shop and they are so darling I thought I just had to share some pictures with you! In a couple of days they will be listed in my shop and I will share a link with you all. I am still working on them so there are many more colour combinations to come but here is what I have done so far.
Over the summer I have done a lot of knitting! Most of it for Mission Without Borders.
Here is my latest blanket for MWB.
I had fun with little newborn beanies for the orphanages.
My first pair of mittens!
And of course, Where would we be without fluffy scarves?
That is my summer holidays in knitting! There are a mountain of other half-finished knitting projects lying around which I will hopefully get finished soon.
I’m off to make dinner for a very hungry Hubby! 🙂
I know I have been gone awhile. It has simply been a crazy few weeks and then to top it all off my hubby and I got really sick last week (first time in a year) and I have been struggling to find the time to blog at all.
This morning, as I was running out of the door to a Mission Without Borders Meeting, I stopped to take a few photos of some of my knitting projects that I have been doing for MWB the last while to share with you.
Booties (Aren’t they just darling?)
And one luscious, soft scarf
And now I am off to clean my house, bake some bread, and unpack from the weekend!
So, usually, I knit blankets back to back for Mission Without Borders and another local charity that sends blankets to birthing centers where the new moms’ don’t have enough for their babies. But lately I have been taking a break from blankets and knitting hats and scarves and booties for Mission Without Borders instead. The orphanages in the Ukraine need so much for their babies and it’s wonderful to think that these little shoes that I knit will be keeping some little one’s feet warm!
Here are some pictures of what I have been knitting this week:
Cute fluffy hats! So cute and so quick to knit! My mom very faithfully and kindly sews them up for me as my hand sewing is absolutely terrible!
Aren’t they adorable? This is such a quick and easy pattern. I can’t wait to experiment with this pattern with different wools!
Last Sunday we met up with my parents-in-law in Devonport to have breakfast together. Devonport is a really ritzy little suburb down on the shore of North Shore city Auckland. It’s very quaint with old villas and little old booke shops and the like. As we were walking along Victoria Street (the main street of Devonport) I saw this and just couldn’t resist snapping a few photos for my blog! I had to share this with you. I have no idea who took the time to knit all these pillar covers but I thought they were adorable.
This week I have been knitting a lot for the second charity (yes, I now knit for two, can you say busy fingers?) which is just squares for cot blankets so I don’t have many exciting things to show you.
And here is Mobi the whale! Isn’t he cute? I just felt like making a stuffed toy (first time) and here he is!
As you can see by the title of this post I have been busy creating again this week. Right now I am up to my elbows in stretch mesh and t-shirting and hopefully at the end it will a cute skirt for summer. I have this totally unrealistic idea that I will be able to finish it before I need to start cooking dinner. A girl can dream can’t she? My housework has been suffering a little this week (as a result of all the crafts) but it’s been a long time since I have felt like sewing anything so I have allowed the bug to overtake me a little.
Right now I am hankering for a dressform as it would make taking photos of my scarves and clothing so much easier! Lying on the ground just does not do them justice!
I made my first attempt at an infinity scarf this week. Here’s how it turned out…
And I have been knitting up a storm again. I am knitting squares for a local charity and then I have been knitting some small things for Mission Without Borders. I am taking a break from blankets for a little while.
I am totally in love with this little bow/cowl scarf I have just finished. It’s far from perfect but I just need a little more practice I think. Hopefully some little girl in eastern Europe will like this scarf!
